Using the Video Projection System

Churches and committees may check out the video/PowerPoint projector. It should be checked out in the name of the individual in whose possession it will be kept most of the time. However, the projector is the responsibility of the church or committee on whose behalf it was checked out.

In case of damage or loss, the church or committee will be billed for the cost of the damage or the total value of the projector.

The projector will be loaned on a Tuesday to Thursday or Thursday to Tuesday basis. The rental fee is $35.00, with checks made payable to “Presbytery of Giddings-Lovejoy.” No fee will be charged for use at Presbytery meetings or presentations by one of the four Ministry Teams.

Payment must be made on the day of check out – no exceptions.

Reservations may be made up to three months in advance, with no church or committee reserving it for more than two full weeks in a row. During the seasons of Lent and Advent, the system may be reserved for no more than 1 full week.

The projector will only be loaned out during normal Resource Center hours, which are Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. No exceptions.

A note about security:

The bulb alone cost FOUR HUNDRED DOLLARS. The point is – treat it well. Please don’t leave it on the front seat of your car while you run into the grocery store. Don’t leave it unattended in the church office. Make sure it is in a safe, dry, secure place at all times.

If you drop or break the equipment, return it immediately to the Resource Center.
